For you youngsters out there. This was written in the days before personal computers.
On a typewriter, (an early word processor!) using pencil and paper (prehistoric design technology) for diagrams.
The first issue I came across was the fact that the original dimensions were all in 'Imperial' (an ancient system of measurement, still widely, and successfully, used in the colonies, LOL). In a metric (European) world things just did not quite fit.
|Cut Out & Glued|
While that was sticking I went to phase two, 'The Roof'. I wanted a more flexible look then thick card.
|Equipment Needed for Phase 2|
H&S Point for all you kids out there: Never use sharp objects whilst under the influence of intoxicants. Please note a Zero percent and not a bad taste if you like 'Cobra' (Don't go for the Kaliber. It was out when this mag was published. It was gopping then and its gopping now!)
I used kitchen roll coated in PVA glue. It sank in the right places but needs to dry hard.
|Bigger & Better ?|
And so the project ended for the night as I waited for the roofs to harden. Painting and basing remain.
In the mean time I cast a modellers eye over what I was throwing away and found these!
There has to be something that can be done with thin strips of balsa!!!!
PS how does one get the ZBA banner on their blogspot. It looks rather natty.
See you all soon.
